    Problem: My home screen no longer auto-rotates when I turn the phone on its side. Apps still do, and if I slide my keyboard out it will flip the home screen. Just started doing this on its own, and I can't think of any changes (settings or apps) that coincided with this behavior change.

    I've already unchecked and rechecked the Orientation option on the Sound & Display settings.

    While not a big deal, it kinda drives me nuts. Any ideas how to return this behavior to its default?

    had the same problem about 2 weeks before it locked up solid on the Android boot up screen (the device is in for repair right now). Is it slow to process your typing during SMS messages?

    Wow mine just start doing the exact same thing yesterday.

    And I find any sort of typing is pretty slow since the last few days.

    oh oh.

    Just tried a factory reset from the setting options.

    Problem is still there.

    No other symptoms on my phone. Everything else works perfectly. What version of software are we all running? I have 10f installed.

    Yup look like we dreamed that our home screen would auto rotate with keyboard not open.

    Got an answer from LG.

    Well look at that! Jay, we must be drinking the same kool-aid. Thanks for following up up this.
